How To Add A Person Module To Your Page

Before you can add a person module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Use Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

Locate the person module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type the word “person” and then click enter to automatically find and add the person module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design and Advanced.

Use Case Example: Adding an “Our Team” Section to an About Page

The about page is good place to feature your team members using the Person Module. This adds a personal touch and can help build trust with new clients.

For this example I’m going to show you how to use the Person Module to add an “Our Team” section to an about page for a small business. I’m going to use a three person, three column layout which keeps the section more compact and fits the overall design of the page.

Save Settings

Now duplicate the Person Module you just created two times and drag the duplicated modules to the second and third columns of the row. Since the design has carried over for each of the duplicated Person Modules, all you have to do is update the content with the person’s image, title, position, social media URLs, and description.

That’s it!
